Semi-retired now, I am willing to travel far and my time is wide open. Available only for end of life hospice, not looking for full time ongoing work. I am willing to come for as little as brief respite relief up to full live-in care. Recent clients have noted that I can be deeply intuitive and able to respond to the profound emotions of meeting death.

All of my work has been seasonal or part time allowing much time for the fullness of my adventuring life. More than anything else I have lived simply in nature. Most often camped, without a regular home￼. Migrating the vast western wilds, from the northern Rockies to the southern deserts. In South America living with the people in their traditional villages.￼￼￼￼
